jst, Jane, NATHAN:
I just want to make myself clear to you: All it took for me to repent my religion was reading through this site. It was the last barrier - Jesus - for my rationalization for religion to be broken. Science broke everything else. This site gives clear reasoning as to why these religions are myths.. prayer doesn't work. Jesus distinctly, on multiple occasions, said it would.
It's just that simple. When NOTHING HAPPENS, it's pretty clear that we are being DELUSIONAL ABOUT IT...
All I've seen you all do is rationalize with yourselves why things don't happen, why this or that, and it all sounds insane. Quoting biblical scripture as if it could show these people something is nonsense, especially when they have all studied it astoundingly. These people know the historical features of these religions, they know all about religions that I never studied to any extent..
What I am saying is, you are reasoning yourselves into things that support your claims. When I saw this site - I immediately looked for more refutation about god/jesus, and more evidence to the contrary. I also looked for evidence for god/jesus, and my conclusion was that the evidence for god/jesus was all based on scripture passages that weren't actually evidence for anything, false claims, superstition, or the outright denial of any evidence against what they were preaching. I have found no factual evidence supporting the god theory. None. I have, however, found a multitude of evidence supporting the idea that god is imaginary. Clearly you all have not done your own research on these matters..
Also, I find it not amusing to point your fingers at these people saying they are not saved, or that you feel you need to save them from anything whatsoever. According to my previous beliefs, if Jesus was actually saying what was the truth, all these people are already saved..
